August Exploration Results: 3 ATCs

I used the papers made in the previous post for some ATCs. The small works were completed pretty darn fast because the backgrounds sort of spoke to me. I knew that the paper painted with shades of reds would be used for one ATC with a Mexico/Frida theme. I primarily used rubber stamps and permanent inks to create the art. The second ATC is collage done with Talbot's methods. There is one image that came from a rubber stamp. The third ATC was created from the paper with shades of blues. I chose rubber stamps again and a die-cut thingie. The ATCs are for a swap that I have due at the end of this month so this exploration was timely for me.

Thanks Linda

Frida is one of my favs. Love to use her image in a lot of my work.

Oooh, don't they work well?

I often make stashes of backgrounds for last minute pieces (they are often last minute, LOL!), and yours have certainly given me some ideas.

You know what is so great about this blog thing? That we can share our thoughts on the process and gather ideas from like-minded artists. I look at the work that you post on your blog and drool.
